Table Mod

For a number of years now we've been putting our secondary cold storage (read cooler and ice packs) underneath the dining table on our :macm: and have cursed every time we maneuvered around the factory leg to access it! I thought up this mod to not only get around that, but to provide a grab-rail fo...

Re: Impeller replacement Suzuki DF60a

Nice work Ross. Another job done! I had to copy and paste the links into the address bar to see the images though. I'm thinking using the "Img" button instead might make them open with the page load (?) Nice place you have there too! :wink: Thanks Brian, I did the re-edit and fixed things up! :) R.

Impeller replacement Suzuki DF60a

After starting last years (2015) season late, and sweating it out with a short period of no visible tell-tale on launch, I decided to get a maintenance kit and do the breakdown before this year's Canada day first splashing. Another member (Tomfoolery) had earlier undertaken a similar effort with his...

Re: 2016 Ontario MacGregor Sailors Rendezvous

Splashing for the first time in my backyard (Green river) tomorrow to test the new impellor kit. Provided I haven't screwed anything up and it still runs I'll post on monday. It's Canada day family weekend and we've got some serious patriotic celebrating to do first! Also completed is a swim platfor...

Re: Trenton Ontario

Ris, are you coming through Lake Couchiching to the Severn river canal side? Dinner and a shower's on me - drinks on you if you are. :D
We're very close to Lock one in Washago on the Green river.

Re: 2016 Ontario MacGregor Sailors Rendezvous

Yesss! Thanks for adjusting the title. At least the sailing Admirals won't feel emasculated anymore..... :D Will we have adjoining slippage pre-arranged, and when should we book in with the marina? The Rama First Nations Pow Wow in starting on the 20th through 21st. We went for a half day last year ...

Re: MMOR 2016

I'll be good to join in again this year. I was getting a little anxious about the calendar slipping by and the Admiral getting on my case re: the summer holiday's arrangements. A few mods to report soon, not to mention (Tom) a huge revelation today in finally pulling my lower end for a similar impel...

Re: BF50 water pump replacement - water comes out holes

I'm glad you're posting this thread Tom! I've just ordered an impeller kit for my Suzi DF60, and should be into what you are doing next week. On my first trip late last year I had no tell tale stream and resorted to closely monitoring the engine temperature in case I had to abort to a marina. Luckil...

Hey Geoff - ditto! :) I'll see your dodger, and raise it by a bowsprit and swim platform. :P Hoping to put our boat in a slip at the 'MacGregor' marina in Washago for the season. Lagoon City sounds great! John - OK I said I'd like to see some snow, but that much! I'll have to change my desktop backg...
